Too bad Antec hasn't utilized Asetek's 570 LX yet, I much prefer their blocks and tubing.

h100 is better than the 920, no doubt about it.

Only "bad" thing is that the have made some witch are faulty if you understand what i mean,cant find a better word for it.
So some have to rma it. I ques more than normal since Corsair sayed that they had an producing error on some. If i dont remeber wrong, it is my little brother wiho has the h100, it was the fans witch didn't work after alittle while, so he had to rma it. Great service at least, fast as well. He got it in under a week when he rma it. Pritty impressive from Corsair I must say!

Probebly the same issue people had with the Antec 920, USB drivers failing to install properly. I partly blame this on the fact that Asetek has not made any newer Firmware for their liquid coolers since 2009! This means that they are using Vista Drivers, not Windows 7, and last time I checked, some things made for Vista do not cooperate with Windows 7.

YESSSSSS Rdany I was just wondering about modding the 620 (920 actually but same thing) what is the exact tubing sized you used? and besides the tubing what else did you have to get?

What does having a reservoir do? Does it help with cooling since you can hold more water?

i just don't understand why my Kuhler 620 isn't living up to the reviews. either they have a very low ambient temp when reviewing or something is not right with my setup. help!

i installed fans everywhere in my Raven RV03 case to see if i was suffocating the rad. it seems to have a positive effect on the temps, but i wanted to see a much more dramatic difference.

previously, i had just the bottom 180mm dual intake fans (stock) and the PULL fan on the rad (Scythe Kama Flow 2 1900RPM as i couldn't stand the stock fan, but have measured the difference to be less than 2C between the two). the rad is mounted on the top. the pump is not controlled by software or bios, so i would expect it to run at full speed.

note: i do not run the bottom intakes at full blaze as it would be be irritating. just low speed.

now i have
- 2 enermax t.b.silent 120mm intakes in front close to the motherboard (there are two places we can mount the fan on the Raven RV03. one towards the front panel, one towards the inner case) remember, the CFM is very low on these fans. main purpose was to give cool air to the CPU area. (the rad isn't far away)
- 1 scythe kama flow2 1400RPM exhaust at the back because the graphic cards put back hot air into the case (wrong choice of graphics cards for this case!)
- 1 scythe kama flow2 1400RPM on the side panel for hard drives (just because i had one lying around. should not affect the CPU temps.)
- also attached the top exhaust fan which came with the case (Silverstone something), as the push fan for the rad. so now i have push-pull on the rad. one silverstone stock case fan pushing and one Scythe Kama Flow 2 1900RPM pulling.

i am still seeing temps as high as 72C at least on one core while running BF3. not even stress testing, though the temp difference is like 5C between gaming and stress testing.

my ambient room temp is like 23-25C these days. 2600K at 4.4GHz with max Vcore @1.32V (which i think is pretty low to give 75C-ish load temps eh?). this is at least 50C delta. would say about 55C when stress testing. Prime95 blend test that is.

while i don't think is has something to do with incorrect seating, as the rad gets pretty warm meaning that the heat is properly transferred from the CPU to the block, i wonder if my judgment can be wrong as the little blue mounting clips got cracked the first time i mounted the block. >_<<br />
what do you guys think i should do to improve the temps?

Have you tried the rad on the back exhaust port as intake? Or move it somewhere else it can pull fresh air from the outside, instead of hot air from inside the case.
